AB832 - 6/29/21

AB832

The Governor has signed legislation which extends eviction moratoriums for residential tenants. The following summary for your reference.   

On June 28, 2021, the new state law (AB 832) was signed by the Governor. The law is applicable to ALL residential tenants experiencing a financial impact due to COVID 19.

  • The landlord must send tenants a COVID-19 declaration and tenants must sign and return it within 15 days if you have a COVID-19 loss of income and/or increased expense and are unable to pay the full amount of rent. This declaration can be required each month and must be submitted to avoid eviction.
  • Pay minimum of 25% of the rent due each month through September 30, 2021, or if you’re unable to pay that amount, you can pay the 25% owed by September 30, 2021, to avoid eviction.
  • Evictions for non-payment of the 25% owed cannot occur before April 1, 2022.
  • A landlord cannot evict for nonpayment of back rent owed between March 1, 2020, and September 30, 2021, but can collect through small claims court process commencing on November 1, 2021. 
  • A landlord must first make a good faith effort to seek state rental assistance for 100% of the back rent owed by low-income tenants (household income does not exceed 80% of the area median).
  • Low-income tenants can now also apply for this assistance directly and they cannot be evicted before March 2022 if they have applied for such assistance. This rental assistance program is administered by the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency https://www.shra.org/sera.
